We had a lovely time, thank
Disappointed that we weren’t offered refills on tea and coffee. The waitress brought the card machine to our table 20 minutes before we were due to leave, encouraging us to pay the bill and leave. There seemed to be some tension about us vacating the table on time. The afternoon tea was ok.
Excellent food. Scones delicious! Atmosphere great. Is well run
We absolutely loved our visit to the tea rooms to celebrate after our wedding. Everything was perfect!
Had a lovely time food was amazing and waiter was so friendly
We had a lovely experience at richmond tea rooms, the sandwiches were NOT the boring flavours you may think of, they were tasty, flavoursome and different. Vegetarians were catered for well, the scone was fluffy and light and the cake plate offered five sweet desserts that were visually enticing and delicious with great textures. It was the perfect amount fir lunch. We returned later for the mad hatter evening event and pretty much had a similar thing for dinner, we really enjoyed our second helping too.xx
lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food
Thank you so much for your review!
Very easy booking process online, had a question which was replied to quickly via email. This was our first visit to the new location. A lovely friendly greeting when we arrived, we had a pram with us and they arranged perfect seating area without us even asking. Afternoon tea was delicious and even the child’s afternoon tea was a perfect and well thought through. Lovely friendly staff, they provided children’s activity book also which was a lovely touch. Great atmosphere and a beautiful quirky restaurant, Richmond tea rooms never disappoints. Thank you.
It's been lovely and the service was fab!
Thank you so much!
We had a wonderful afternoon. I had booked it as a surprise for my mums birthday. The staff, particularly our waitress Micha (I think) was very attentive. She asked who’s birthday it was and brought her afternoon tea out with a candle in it whilst singing, such a lovely touch. The service was efficient and the food and drink really enjoyable. Love the new premises, beautiful building and decor still amazing.
Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! So glad you enjoyed your visit to us
Last came 3 years ago, this visit was my daughter's birthday treat. We were a little disappointed as we ordered a queen's tea and hatters tea, but they seemed much smaller than last time? I don't think queen's tea was worth the money, wasn't given s choice of sandwiches and didn't like some of them. Staff are great and still a lovely place, albeit packed in like sardines downstairs! Will visit again but wouldn't order the same thing.
Great Atmosphere. Lovely and attentive service.
Chips were cold for 5 of our table otherwise may have higher score. They were changed without any bother. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Surroundings very quaint.
Jack was an excellent waiter and looked after us through the whole visit!
We attended for an afternoon tea (party of 6). One of the guests is gluten and dairy free (medical reasons) and was a little disappointed they couldn't source gf/df bread given the time between booking and attendance. However having said that, every one enjoyed the food they were able to choose and the service was excellent. Will consider booking again.
Excellent return visit love this place
Really nice place but really slow service. El lugar es hermoso pero el servicio es muy lento.
Had a very enjoyable birthday visit here.
Love this place
Great food and atmosphere. Unfortunately the 2 hour time slot soon passes and you're rushed off your table.
Lovely service, nice surroundings. Highly enjoyable afternoon.
We loved the theme and atmosphere of the venue. Staff were friendly and really helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience.
Thank you so much for your feedback!
First time visit to new premises, and not disappointed. Always beautifully presented with excellent food and service. The staff are friendly and helpful. We'll be back! X
Thank you so much!
It was obvious that you was short staffed in the day we visited which left tables uncleared quickly once customers left. Our waiter was working extremely hard to keep things in an even keel. However it didn’t de tracked from the excellent food or cake we ate.
Thank you so much for your feedback!
Myself, husband, heavily pregnant daughter and partner and my 12yr old son all visited Richmond tea rooms after the theatre on NYE. I had book several weeks in advance and rang to reserve a table suitable for our son as he is autistic. The lady I spoke to bent over backwards to ensure we would get the right table in the orangery to reduce stress for our visit. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and the table was perfect for my sons needs. We couldn’t fault the gentleman who took care of us and nothing was too much trouble! He was informative, pleasant and made our party very relaxed. Anyone with an autistic child will know how stressful it is to eat out but this was an exception and we all had a great time. The food was excellent, we all had afternoon tea, two gentlemen’s, two queen and one richmond. What a great experience thank you Richmond Tea Room’s for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
Aw we're so happy you all enjoyed your visit to us! We do pride ourselves on being a place where everyone can relax and be a little bit pampered in our whimsical tearooms! Really hope to see you again soon and thank you so much for the review!!
